Kruger National Park
South Africa

Tel: 27 21 683 3424

These two lodges sit on 33,000 acres "full of wildlife" and Euphorbia trees. Lebombo's loft-style suites are perched above the N'wanetsi River, while Sweni's are shaded by the riverine forest, their interiors showing flashes of lime, avocado, and kiwi. Dinners focus on grilled meats and vegetables—"something for every dietary need"—and "amazing singing and dancing" by staff, who "make you feel like family."
